Connected

There’s a substantive intimacy in nature. It’s filling.The smell of earth satisfying and rejuvenating. The wind enveloping you in its invisible caress.Touching without, healing within. Hello, beautiful bird on a sunny day!Seeing you brings me joy and a smile. The smile of someone engaged. I feel my best friend at that moment.And I miss her. […]

To My Many

Memories resting on the sidelines
Ever present, never seen
One is many, many one. 
Clothed in shades of tawn and russet
Decaying thoughts and fading blood
Memories resting on the sidelines. 
Tawn and russet crusted bodies
All the same and all uniqueOne is many, many one. 
Just below an opaque surface
Firmly past still yet present 
Memories resting on the sidelines. […]
